This is part of a growing disdain of customers in much of retailing that includes stores of all kinds removing their clocks and subjecting customers to headache-inducing, pounding rock music.
Of course, USPS did not admit its true motivation for the clock-removal program. Its official reason: A "retail standardization program" designed to promote a uniform appearance at the post office. So, instead of dozens of different clocks on the walls, no clocks at all. Can't get more uniform than that.
For the same reason, then,
it should allow no stamps on a first-class letter. Makes cents!
